  1. I saw this place reviewed in the AAA magazine Westways - http://ww1.calif.aaa.com/westways/201...

    Have you been back?
    It seems like a good place to try.

    1. Went there for the first time tonight .... and the last time.
      Food (we ordered one noodle dish, two tapas, and one dessert) was good, BUT...

      the first time food came out was 50 minutes after we ordered. It was busy, but I have never seen such poor service.

      Instead of sending at least one or two of the small plates first, everything came out all at once - and 50 minutes after we had sat down. With nary an apology.

      The waitperson who took our order could have said "Kitchen is very busy tonight, do you want to order something that can come out quickly?"

      I will not go back.

        "May I perhaps interest you in our hot Nissen ramen?"

        1. re: J.L.

          Or maybe even the Nissin ramen?
